Muntjacs, also known as Barking Deer and Mastreani Deer, are small deer of the genus Muntiacus. Muntjacs are the oldest known deer, appearing 15 to 35 million years ago, Males have short antlers which can regrow, and they tend to fight for territory with their tusks which are rather downward-pointing canine teeth. Muntjacs are of great interest in evolutionary studies because of their dramatic chromosome variations and the recent discovery of several new species.
